VW Passat V6 upper radiator hose. Its very hard to tell how much life is left in your hoses. Years of heating and cooling with the temperature of coolant can leave hoses splitting or swelling. Some with plastic joints in them just become brittle and crack. If you are changing it because you already have a leak, or you just know that the hose you have is due to be replaced, this is a top quality direct fit replacement hose.
After replacing your VW Passat V6 upper radiator hose, be sure to fill your cooling system with the correct coolant. VW/Audi has strict requirements for what types of coolant work in your vehicle. G13 coolant is the most recent spec and works with the previous G12 line of coolants. Its made to protect your engine internals from corrosion, while providing maximum cooling.
